R7000 Poor speed on TalkTalk UFO

I specifically purchased the R7000 as I had seen a review on small net builder that indicated the router could handle Gigabit Internet with WAN speeds around 940Mbit.


The service I have is the Business version of TalkTalk's UFO service. The service is fast with a down speed using the ISP's standard issue router of in excess of 870Mbit down and Up speed of 940Mbit - but not with the Netgear R7000. 


The R7000 cannot muster more than 450Mbit down which is terribly dissappointing and way behind the ISP's Huawei router.


The connection uses PPPoE, The MTU is set at 1492 and the datarate is around 450Mbit down and 550Mbit up.


I am thinking of returning the router unless I can get it to work at the data rates of the Huawei.


Any suggestions?

Unfortunately, what you experienced is expected.  The R7000 cannot do more than 450 Mbps when performing PPPoE.  PPPoE is very CPU intensive on the R7000.  You should probably return the router.
